Design and Technology Suite

The Design and Technology Suite showcases inspiring technology and equipment which make a real difference to the day-to-day lives of people with dementia and their carers.


The Design and Technology Suite is a permanent display of interior rooms and equipment and exterior and garden spaces, showing how they can be adapted to support the particular spatial and sensory needs of people with dementia.

The Design and Technology Suite is an ideal way to see the main principles of dementia-friendly design in action.


Self-conducted audio tours of the Suite, which is based at DSDC HQ in the Iris Murdoch Building, can be booked for groups of up to 20 people.

These tours are available free of charge to people with dementia, family carers, volunteers and students. Handset tours are available for other groups on request. Please note these are subject to a fee of £10 per person.
